Trailer Judi Dench In Red Joan

Lionsgate has premiered the new trailer for the Judi Dench-led and Trevor Nunn-directed espionage drama “Red Joan” which will open on April 19th in the UK.

Sophie Cookson, Stephen Campbell Moore and Tom Hughes co-star in the film which starts in 2000 when retiree Joan Stanley (Dench) is arrested by MI5 and accused of providing intelligence to Communist Russia.

Flashback to 1930, Joan is a Cambridge physics student who falls for young communist Leo Galich. Working at a top-secret nuclear research facility during WWII, she comes to the realisation that the world is on the brink of mutually assured destruction and must choose between betraying her country and loved ones or saving them.
